NFL Draft 2012: Patriots Deny Trade Talks With Seattle

For now, the New England Patriots won't be trading up into the top-15 -- at least that's what they say. Despite some rumors and speculation about a possible deal that would land the Patriots the No. 12 pick in the first round, they insist they aren't looking to acquire the Seahawks' first rounder. Per the team's official Twitter account from earlier this afternoon:

The Patriots have not spoken w/ Seattle about moving up to the #12 pick. #NFLDraft

There has been some talk about the Pats making some form of a trade as the draft approaches, especially with two first round picks, but many of those deals have the team moving down into the second or later rounds.
